Following three competitive quotes to
undertake the work and in accordance with CSO 8.03, award the
contract to Local Data Company (LDC) for the installation of 5 x
footfall device sensors at locations selected by LBH (Tottenham and
Crouch End); access to footfall data and location insights; and
quarterly reporting to summarise footfall data.
The total cost for the provision of these services for a 12-month period is £12,550 and is funded through the ERDF supported Reopening the High Streets Safely Fund.
Town centres in Haringey (incl. Tottenham and
Crouch End) have been profoundly impacted by the Covid-19
As part of the council’s approach to safe opening and safe shopping on its high streets and managing the impact of Covid-19 in the medium and longer term, the requirement for footfall counting and data analysis has become more essential and has a primary role in assessing the economic wellbeing of our town centres and will play a key role in local decision making and help plan for town centre recovery.
If the council were to adopt a do nothing approach it would have a detrimental impact on the council’s ability to deliver evidence-based interventions for the borough’s high streets and town centres and impact on the council’s ability to ensure the safety of the public as lockdown restrictions are relaxed.
